20 Set-ups for Single Leg Attacks

Keep your opponent guessing with this arsenal of over 20 set-ups from Jeff Swenson! Swenson led Augsburg to a record-10 NCAA Division III national championships - one of only three NCAA schools to have won 10 or more wrestling national titles. While building his squad into a national wrestling powerhouse, Swenson taught his wrestlers to always be on the attack. In this instructional wrestling DVD, Swenson gives you numerous options to get to your single-leg attack no matter what your opponent tries to counter with.

Discover three critical areas in the set-up:

  • Low contact set-ups
  • Semi-contact set-ups
  • Contact set-ups

He goes through each step-by-step clearly defining the proper mechanics to set-up the attack effectively.

You will get 10 set-up techniques from the Augsburg Inside Hook, which has become a staple in the program's success on the feet. Swenson shows each set-up from multiple angles to give you a true feel for how to teach the technique. These set-ups will put your wrestlers in good position to get deep penetration and to score consistently. DVD. 46 minutes. 2009.


Finishing the Single Leg Attack

Six-time NWCA Coach of the Year Jeff Swenson shows you the "Augsburg way" to finish your single leg takedown attempts - both on your feet and on the mat.

Part 1, From the Mat: Discover eight ways to beat the defenses your wrestlers will see from the mat. Learn essential techniques like far ankle, quad load, windmill, bump, hip pull and more. Put these techniques to work with Swenson's live action practice drills.

Part 2, From Your Feet: Learn 10 easy, yet effective, finishes from the feet such as the toe trip, Demery Finish, Run the Pipe, Okie, High Outside Finish and more. For the first time on video, Swenson reveals Augsburg's signature move: the shoulder pummel set-up. Two former Augsburg All-American wrestlers demonstrate each technique step-by-step, highlighting the keys to making each move work.

Don't let your wrestlers settle for a stalemate - these finishes will give your wrestlers more options to score. DVD. 58 minutes. 2009.


The Augsburg High Crotch Series: Set-ups and Finishes

Hall of Fame Coach Jeff Swenson provides you with an in-depth look at one of his program's staples - the Augsburg High Crotch Series, which is an inside step high crotch.

Coach Swenson breaks down the move from proper stance, through set-up (focusing on an inside hook), how to get deep penetration all the way through to taking your opponent to the mat. Along the way he covers what to do if your opponent tries to tie up your hands, tries to block you with an underhook, how to score from a crack down position and more.

Swenson demonstrates seven different finishes for the high crotch, as well as three set-ups. He includes drills to help reinforce the technique. This is an excellent series that will get more points for your wrestlers. DVD. 51 minutes. 2009.
